As an avid scrapbooker, I've learned many tricks along the way. To tell the story, I love getting as many pictures as possible on a layout. The only problem is it left very little room for my much loved embellishments. I am a girl who loves a challenge, so here comes the pullouts, twist outs, and the foldouts to save the day!
There are many ways to use these ideas. Here are a few examples of how one's eye might be deceived at first glance into thinking there are only two photos on the layouts, when in fact, there are four or five.
Love You by Amy Sotolongo
Supplies: Paper, Chipboard, Die Cut Title, Date Sticker: My Mind’s Eye, Cardstock: American Crafts, Brad: Making Memories, Ink: Jenni Bowlin Studios, Pen: Sharpie. Tools: Electronic Cutter: Silhoutte, Border Stamp: My Mind’s Eye. Digital Supplies: Shape: Kerri Bradford Designs.
Design Note: Layout originally looks like two photos but by removing the small clip, three more photos and journaling are revealed.If you are worried about the metal touching your photo you could always slip a bit of plastic from a page protector under where the metal touches.
Journaling: Look at that sweet face! You were such a cute newborn with those big eyes. I can't believe how fast time has gone by and how big you now are. You now have the biggest smile and the big brown eyes, but I'm never going to forget taking photos of you for the first time...Sweet little James (not little for long!)

Editor's Note: I liked all 4 photos of my daughter but did not want to shrink them. Instead I decided to make a picture window of two pictures on top of two more. It is fun and interactive!
Journaling: I love the mix that is you--a tomboy who loves pink always in the woods but never without your ipod.
